Spotted with my own eyes this time, I spotted a tagless seasoned pair of Levi's, just by looking at it's bootcut features, I knew at once that it is a Levi's 517. However the backpockets and also arctuates are really different from the usual Levi's 517s before.

Immediately I took it, and searched its zipper, and to my suprise it is a Talon 42 zipper made in USA, a positive vintage indication. And right at the backpockets, its red tab only states an R. This really signifies something special about these pair of jeans. I tried to put it on, but it wasn't my size anyway. I was reluctant.

And then I search the innards of the jeans for a care tag, and there is a small care tag with instructions, size and also model and year of make. These pair of Levi's jeans were made in the USA in the year 1979. Whoa, that's a long time ago, I wasn't born yet. This is really a pair of vintage jeans. And even though it doesn't fit, in my mind, I must get hold of a pair of these.
